Mealthy tip:

To get the cauliflower caramelized and crispy, simply turn the oven to “Broil” for the final three to five minutes of cooking time.

I can never seem to get my cauliflower crispy, but did 5 minutes broil today and it was perfect! The color is fun for presentation to kids who aren't super jazzed about cauliflower. Only change I made was to take out cayenne since our family has spicy hating people in it :)

Yummy! Roasted cauliflower is my favorite side dish. I tried this recipe with orange cauliflower. I like to switch it up and use the orange cauliflower for a boost of vitamin A
